LearningExpressLibrary has changed!

LearningExpressLibrary (LEL) 3.0 is here. New users should click the "Register" button and sign up for a free account in the new version. If you have unfinished work in the current version of 2.0, you have until the end of June 2014 to finish up. After that, version 2.0 will be discontinued, and the logins do not carry over to the new version. You must create a new account then. Currently all GED tests have already migrated to 3.0, and you will need to create a new account to take the prep. As always, ask a librarian if you have questions.
